Mucho Gusto Much the Best in Lewis
Sent off as the 1-2 favorite in the field of five sophomores, Michael Petersen's Mucho Gusto made short work of Saturday's G3 Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita. The son of Mucho Macho Man, ridden by Joe Talamo for trainer Bob Baffert, splashed under the wire a 4 3/4-length winner to complete 1 1/16 miles over the sloppy course in 1:41.81. Mucho Gusto's win earned him 10 points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby, while runner-up Gunmetal Gray earned four points and third-place finisher Easy Shot earned two.
